Used to love it 3/5
I used to love this app but the last update it seems the ovulation test logging part no longer works to take a photo of the strip. Also, the forum doesn’t appear to be working.
It keeps glitching out 1/5
It glitches out
Love this app!!!
App won’t sync with apple watch 4/5
I’ve been using Glo for a long time and i like the app but i recently got an apple watch and the app will sync to my watch then sometimes it says no period data on my watch. Is there a way to fix this?
Just ads and heterosexism 1/5
Glow used to be great, but these days it’s 90% ads. They reeeaally want you to do IVF through their program. 🙄
And as a queer person, there are so many things that make me feel out of place here. Switching to Clue.
Stop sending me 400 notifications a day 3/5
The amount of notifications I get from a period tracking app is insane. I’d rather roll the dice with my calendar app than open my phone and have to clear out 30 notifications about some community discussion I have no interest in. Can you make it an option to shut off notifications?? I tried to do that yet I still get more alerts from this app than most group chats.
Cluttered with paid add ons 2/5
By What is the verbal diarrhea
When I first got this app it was great kept everything on track ,it’s pretty accurate but now it just feels like the app is cluttered with a bunch of add ons you have to pay for. It’s annoying with all the pop ups for the add ons when you’re trying to enter things. I don’t even use this app everyday anymore just during the week of my period.
Great app 5/5
This app is always on point. It’s been right every since I started using it.
Great app! 5/5
By Denee' B
I love this app but I hate that if I click multiple sex sessions the option to choose birth control method disappears.
Best app ever 5/5
By Lovers only
I love Glow. This app has everything needed to stay connected and organize.
Great app for avoiding pregnancy or ttc. Sometimes it can have your ovulation off so definitely make sure you pay attention. Other than that it’s very easy to use and the boards are good for interacting with people.
Never worked with Apple Watch 3/5
I chose this app because I have an Apple Watch and it is one of the only fertility apps that has an Apple Watch function. I never was able to get it to sync to my watch— it just kept saying “need data.” Despite all of the suggestions in the help section to get it to sync it never worked. The phone app is fine but I decided to go with a different app to track periods and fertility.
Shady charging schemes 1/5
This app is okay for tracking periods, but be careful what you click on.
I guess at some point I did a free trial for the premium version. Well, the other day an ad popped up that said, “try premium free for 14 day”. I clicked on it. No other warnings popped up, letting me know I wasn’t eligible to try for free. I guess since I had already done some sort of trial in the past, that pop up didn’t apply to me. Honestly, it’s something I can’t remember doing. That was that, they charged my apple account 48 bucks. Looking through Q&A’s it says they don’t do refunds.
By why do i have to do tbks
Have had to reset my password 5 times and now the app doesn’t recognize my user name. But I can log on to the website no problem.
Good for the Gals! 5/5
Perfect app for alll the ladies out there, something for everyone !
I really love Glow and the other apps!! :) 5/5
I have been using this app for 5 years ever since I got married to track my periods and ovulation. It’s as accurate as it can be IF you do log every day. That’s how we conceived our first child. Then we got to use the other apps with glow for pregnancy and baby. This is such an amazing app and I ALWAYS recommend this to every girl that talks about her period, pregnancy, or if they have a newborn. :)
This app gave me false hope. I am incredibly upset and let down. I was using it to track my fertility.. not only did it get my fertile and ovulation day(s) wrong but it also got my period wrong.. I was so excited because I had missed a period so I thought I was pregnant. It was extremely hard for me to accept the fact that I am not pregnant yet again!
I gave you 3 stars 3/5
3 stars because I use this app for tracking everything however the consent ads to upgrade to premium is ridiculous. I won’t waste my money on an app when I can use multiple apps to track everything specially since my money goes to fertility treatment. Sorry!
Love the log function - lose the community posts 4/5
I love the calendar functionality - it makes tracking my cycle and intimacy easy. I also love how quick it is to log changes to my body, from mood to acne and fatigue. It’s helpful at identifying patterns.
I would give it 5 stars if it weren’t for the low quality community posts. I just read one from a user who “snooped” through her boyfriend’s phone. What does that have to do with getting pregnant? How does an ‘article’ like that belong in a TTC tool? It’s trashy and there are many others like it in the app.

Glow is the best Period
Aggressive Advertising & Shady Data Sharing 2/5
Despite its generally accurate predictions the app constantly pesters you to upgrade much more aggressively than other free apps. It’s unpleasant to navigate because every feature pushes upgrades. Beware of the quizzes, the app automatically posts your results to their community & connecting Glow to MyFitnessPal is a mistake! The Glow app perpetually redirects me to MyFitnessPal then crashes.
Haven’t been able to open the app 1/5
I downloaded this yesterday. When I tried to create an account, it said wrong email and password combo. I tried to login using my email, thinking maybe I had an account before I forgot about. Nope, it said user not found. So I tried a different email and then it said too many attempts. Today I tried again and it came up with continue as Rhiannon, so I clicked it and went through the prompts. The final question I got was to put in my last period date. As soon as I enter it, the app closes. I’ve hear great things about this app and I’d love to use it but so far it’s just been frustrating.
Great app 5/5
Love the app. Both me and my husband have it we are ttc.🤞🏾🤞🏾 only issue I have is all the ads..
Great for keeping track of Aunt Flo
No longer free 2/5
So, I had this app for a year and I only got it because it was free. Today I received a notification saying I had three options to choose from because it is no longer free. Then if you don’t want to pay then you have to go into settings and manage it that way, instead of just deleting the app because you will be charged to your account. This is in very small print at the bottom. I don’t mind paying a reasonable price for an app, but when you try and trick the buyers and make them go into their settings just to get rid of it or you’ll charge them, in my opinion it’s absurd. People should be able to just delete an app without being charged. Just want people to know what they’re getting into. Other than that the app was pretty accurate, but because of poor business strategy I’m giving a two star review.
Love this app. Way better than my previous app. I love how it notifies you a few days before your period is due. The only thing I can’t stand is the medication tab. I wish is was a little easier to use. I’m on the Nuvaring and I have to remember to take it out every 3 weeks. Then I wait a week before inserting a new one. Would be great if there was a way that I can set a reminder in the app rather than on my calendar on my phone. Hoping to see an update for that soon. Other than that excellent app
Accurate Predicting 5/5
By glo user since 2015
After a few months the app is able to learn and accurately predict cycle each month.
Glow app pros and cons 4/5
By glow glow member
This app is amazing it so good for tracking your period but the only thing is that every Time you open the app it pops up with do want to be a glow premium member
Ha ya right. Liars 1/5
Advertised free everywhere. For a month. I said eh I’ll try it. Nope. Hit it- card charged. Don’t go to it
It a very good health and period tracker
Do NOT download 1/5
I downloaded this app for fertility purposes and recommended by a coworker. Glow seemed like an app for women to come together through good and bad times. You can join little communities and create posts. Many users though treat it like FB and troll your posts. I posted about a sad post about my fertility and in seconds was attacked! So will definitely not recommend this to anyone!
Extremely accurate, was spot on with my period. I got pregnant using the ovulation tracker and so I’m guessing it was correct.
2 Stars 2/5
Not very accurate on ovulation even with OT&BBT entered.
More than just periods... 5/5
By Lynne Barton
Its actually a really dope app. You can track more than just ur cycle tho. I'm on it to track my moods and sleep. Really helpful and even fun!
Glow literally helped me conceive as it was 100% accurate with my fertile days, as well as my period days. Highly recommend to track your periods and ovulation!
Can’t log in 1/5
I have reset my password multiple times and when I try to log in I get the message that user is not found. Would have loved to try the app but I can’t even get past the log in page!!
Always loved it 5/5
Easy to access and provide you do much feedback! Make sure you log regularly
Needs Updates, Frustrating App 3/5
I have been using this app, along with a few others for 1 year. I find Glow to be the worst ovulation tracker, as there is no option to manually mark ovulation. When I initially started tracking my periods after I stopped BC, I had 40+ day cycles and a few months in, learned I was not ovulating. I started tracking BBT and using ovulation strips & taking a few supplements, which have shortened my cycles to 27-30 days. I have been ovulating past 4 cycles. Glow still always predicts the 40 days even though I log literally everything. I always input the Positive ovulation tests and have great temp shifts. The algorithm still says I didnt ovulate yet. I did! Very frustrating. Glow needs to add in an option to manually mark ovulation when this occurs. There are better tracking apps out there
Can’t sync to my watch after latest update 4/5
After the latest update, I am unable to sync my period data to my Apple Watch. Other than that, this app has been very accurate!
The best 5/5
This app is beyond accurate that it’s actually scary.
Highly recommended For Consistency 5/5
This app is spot on!! I’m not even exaggerating. When I started working out heavily, my menstrual cycle had a variance by a day or two. Now that it had balance out, this app has the start of ovulation and my menses down to the exact day every time! 🙌🏾
Worse by the update. 1/5
It was okay at first, but with each update, more ads are included and more features either go away or are more difficult to use. Really inaccurate predictions too. It says “high” risk of pregnancy then also says “1% chance”.... really??? Only keeping the app long enough to post this review then I’m deleting it. There’s tons of better apps out there.
Love it!! 5/5
I use this app just about every day and it keeps me motivated to keep trying
love this app ! 5/5
it’s so great and I recommend that everyone uses it ! pretty accurate on all the timings with everything !
Much too crude, but layout is nice 3/5
Way too crude, I had notifications turned on until I got a notification and saw the full f-word written on my lock screen. Then an article they wrote used a reference to porn. I don’t roll like that. So I turned the notifications off and stay away from the “community” and article portion.
Otherwise, layout is nice. Easy to read, works well.
Pregnant in less than 3 mo. Thanks to glow! 5/5
After using Glow for three months I have became pregnant! May trying to conceive so much easier, and would not have been able to do it without glow!
